Revisiting the Agyapa Transaction: CSO Coalition calls for thorough Debate

gold _1.jpg.optimal

The most critical assessment of the process of the Agyapa transaction was done by the Office of the Special Prosecutor (OSP) on the risk of corruption and anticorruption on the deal. The conclusions made by the former Special Prosecutor (SP), Mr. Martin Amidu, confirmed some of the concerns we raise. Mr. Amidu highlighted, among others, that the processes of procuring the services of the transaction  advisors were “…unconstitutional, null and void, and sins against any positive analysis of the risk of corruption, and anti-corruption assessment in their handling of the transactions….”

We call on the government to avail itself for a thorough debate on the future of Ghana’s mineral income. We hold on to the President’s call for national consensus and resubmission of the transaction to Parliament. Anything short of this directive would undermine any trust we have in the words of the President. The President promised to be accountable before the elections and he cannot appear to have changed course after winning the elections, an act which would be deceitful to the people of Ghana.
